World Tour of The Pat Metheny Group

The Pat Metheny Group will prove that they show no signs of slowing down at a concert presented by Community Performance Series in Potsdam, NY on Monday, February 14 at 7:30 pm. The group begins a world tour in February to promote their new album, The Way Up, released by Nonesuch Records on January 25.

A continuous 68-minute composition written by guitarist Metheny and longtime collaborator/pianist Lyle Mays, the album is the Group’s most ambitious and cohesive effort to date, a thrilling achievement to mark Metheny’s 30th year as a recording artist. Metheny says of the Group’s twelfth studio album, “This project is our most ambitious undertaking ever as a group – and we have never been so excited about a project. This record takes every aspect of the band to a new level.” Founded in 1977, The Pat Metheny Group is the only ensemble in history to win seven consecutive GRAMMY awards for seven consecutive releases.

Before their official tour, which will visit major cities across the U.S. and abroad, the Group will be kicking off their Way Up tour with a full-scale concert in Potsdam, NY on February 14 at 7:30pm in Maxcy Hall on the SUNY Potsdam campus.
